More encouragement to discover our inner strength and beauty, this time in the poetry of Kabir:
Don’t go outside your house to see flowers.
My friend, don’t bother with that excursion.
Inside your body there are flowers.
One flower has a thousand petals.
That will do for a place to sit.
Sitting there you will have a glimpse of beauty
inside the body and out of it,
before gardens and after gardens.
Kabir, Translated from the Hindi by Robert Bly
